OK fans,we've had a lot of postings and discussions about props and clothing. And while "clothes make the man", anyone who has seen Indy flex his biceps while hacking away at the rope bridge in ToD has to wonder what HF was doing to get buffed up for that film.
This workout was gleaned from the new biography, Harrison Ford: Imperfect Hero. It's the workout he was put on by Fran Horneff and Jake (Body by Jake) Steinfeld to prepare for The Last Crusade:
At 6 or 6:30 in the morning -
100 benchpresses with 115 pound weights
100 leg extensions with 70 pound weights
100 leg curls with 50 pound weights
100 squats with 100 pound weights
200 assorted arm, upper body and back exercises with 15 to 25 pound weights
100 gridiron-style "squat thrusts"
and, finally, up to 400 situps
